A global law firm has turned to GEZE UK for a totally bespoke, virtually invisible glass entrance to a private fitness centre located within its prestigious London headquarters.
The UK’s leading manufacturer of door and window control systems, GEZE UK, teamed up with Radii Partitioning Limited to meet the demanding brief for a uniquely curved glass internal entrance.
GEZE UK’s eye-catching Slimdrive SC automatic curved sliding entrance with bespoke curved glass screens was specifically designed to fit seamlessly into the space, running up to and around the curved desk.
With an exceptional concern for detail, GEZE UK has concealed the floor track for the automatic entrance under the line of the carpet, so that only the guides for the door leaves are visible. At the top of the door, the operator and all fixings are concealed within the ceiling, ensuring a sleek, seamless finish. The moving leaves and side parts are fine-framed and add to the visual impression of light and transparency.
Part of GEZE UK’s unique Slimdrive range, the versatile SC operator is just 7cm high, making the installation almost invisible and enhancing the glass effect. It has also been designed and tested to meet the requirements of all relevant standards and regulations, including Building Bulletin 93, Approved Documents B and M, as well as assisting with the vigorous demands of the Equality Act.
GEZE UK’s operations director Simon Bowden said: “This was a bespoke installation that was designed specifically to fit the available space as well as accommodate and enhance the large curved desk. We needed a meticulous eye for detail to ensure we met the high standards required, and by working in partnership with Radii Partitioning we could create this highly aesthetic, unique entrance.”
Senior technical manager for Radii Partitioning Ltd, Mark Cooke added: “We undertook a number of projects for this leading law firm, but were delighted to work with GEZE UK to install this curved entrance. By working together we were able to design an entrance that exactly met the needs and vision of our client, and the standard of finish was extremely high.”
